Summary:
"Over the last ten years, there has been growing concern about potential biological attacks on the nation s population and its military facilities. It is now possible to detect such attacks quickly enough to permit treatment of potential victims prior to the onset of symptoms. The capability to detect to warn, that is in time to take action to minimize human exposure, however, is still lacking. To help achieve such  Read more...

Abstract:

The capability to 'detect to warn', in cases of potential biological attacks, is still lacking. To help achieve such a capability, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) asked the National  Read more...

The capability to detect to warn, that is in time to take action to minimize human exposure, however, is still lacking. To help achieve such a capability, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) asked the National Research Council (NRC) to assess the development path for detect to warn sensors systems.
